Yoga Baby and Yoga Mama are getting fit and having an enjoyable time doing it in this colorful and fun board book. Readers watch as this lovable dynamic duo engages in a series of poses and play respectfully.
Yoga Baby is a delightful book to read. The color pallet is bright and cheerful, highlighting a light-hearted tone. The story pairs various yoga poses with either Yoga Baby’s interactions with Yoga Mama or Yoga Baby’s efforts to copy Yoga Mama. The play displayed on the page is expertly animated by the illustrations, encouraging children and adults alike to get on the yoga mat and have a good time. Descriptions at the end of the book present ideas for incorporating yoga with your own little one and implementing the fun ideas this book brings to life. Yoga Baby is a great read if you are looking for new ways to engage your little ones in enjoyable and rewarding physical activity.
